Week 1 Notes: Eagles @ Redskins

Coming away from this game, each team made their fair share of self-inflicted wounds. That’s exactly what you expect from a week 1 game, let alone a divisional game in week 1. What I also noticed is that both defenses completely sold out against the run, forcing both quarterbacks to make heroic plays to find…

New Coaches for the Philadelphia Eagles

Whether you feel like the Philadelphia Eagles were making a mistake by moving on from Andy Reid, which was commonly unlikely at the time, or if you were skeptical about the hiring of Chip Kelly, which was about 50/50 at the time, both are no longer in the City of Brotherly Love. To be honest,…

NFC East Survivor Likely Headed for Dead End

I know that the Giants have made a couple of Super Bowl runs in the past decade, even if they did squeak into the playoff picture as underdogs. The Eagles had a long stretch of reaching the NFC Championship game in the early 2000’s. The Redskins are finding some of that success they tasted during…

Pick-Six: Players With Opportunities

Sam Bradford (Eagles QB) Guys, don’t get caught up into the repetitive Sam Bradford talk. Everyone understands the situation. To simplify things going forward, what would you normally think of a #1 overall pick at quarterback playing for Chip Kelly? Have you seen how explosive the Eagles have been, since Kelly revitalized them the past two…

Today in Sports 7.8.15

DeAndre Jordan is stealing the headlines. The free agent center just made All-NBA 3rd Team and 1st-All Defensive Team. He may be going back on his verbal agreement with Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks. The word is spreading about him ignoring all communication efforts from the Dallas brass, including forward Chandler Parsons, while meeting…

NFL Draft Hashmarks: Picks 1-5

 Player: Jameis Winston Age: 21 Height: 6’4 Weight: 231 College: Florida State Tampa Bay’s pick was the only one I would have bet on, rolling with the home-state quarterback in Jameis Winston, just like Jacksonville did last year with Blake Bortles. The Buccaneers have their new face, surrounded by a pair of big playmaking wide outs…

NFC East Heading Into the Draft

G-Men I love every single thing the Giants have done to improve so far this offseason, every last move. J.T. Thomas started to come into his own in the second half of the season for the Jaguars. He took advantage of the opportunity when other guys got banged up and the G-Men noticed. Just when you…

Which Wide Receivers Are the Real Deal?

Pierre Garcon of the Washington Redskins Garcon immediately too a backseat to DeSean Jackson, just like I thought would happen. Of course, he has a better connection with Robert Griffin under center, but the other two quarterbacks that played found success going to Jackson. Even with that said, Jackson wasn’t targeted enough and still racked…

Dallas Cowboys: The Offseason Begins

Jason Garrett receives a 5-year, $30 million contract, after winning the NFC East and winning a home playoff game in 2014. Also returning, is defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli. The Dallas Cowboys came up short against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, ending their season. These contract extensions kick off an interesting offseason with major decisions…
